Face Coverings

People must by law wear a face covering on public transport  and public transport premises such as train stations and airports.

Wearing a face covering will, by law, be compulsory (with certain exceptions) from 10 July in shops.   But please do not wait until then to get into the habit of using a face covering.  For more information please click on the following link: - Face Coverings

Specific exemptions provide that certain categories of people are not required to wear a face covering. This includes children under five years of age, a police constable or workers such as paramedics acting in the course of their duty.  Staff such as drivers who are physically separated, by means of, for example, screens, from other staff and passengers are also exempt from wearing face coverings.

You may also have a reasonable excuse not to wear a face covering if, for example:

  • you have a health condition where a face covering would be inappropriate because it would cause difficulty, pain or severe distress or anxiety or because you cannot apply a covering and wear it in the proper manner safely and consistently.
  • you have a reasonable need to eat or drink
  • you need to take medication
  • you need to communicate with someone else who relies on lip reading
  • a relevant person, such as a police officer, asks you to remove your face covering

The following exemption cards can be printed and cut out to show if you are exempt from wearing a face covering:
